  • No April 2021 Meeting. NO MEETING THIS WEDNESDAY (4/14)!This week is a very hectic one at the Texas Capitol, with multiple attacks on Healthcare for LGBTQI+ Texans.

Otherwise, there are plenty of ways to engage remotely.https://www.equalitytexas.org/lege-week-13-wrap-up-healthcare-under-attack/
